  1. Do you have a full Gmail inbox but don’t want to delete emails if you need them later? Archiving can be the answer, but what does that mean? Does your Gmail inbox feel overcrowded with emails? Yet, you don’t want to delete everything if you need that information at a later date. That is where the archive function comes in. But how do you use it effectively? And how can you find those emails again when you need to? Using the archive provided by Gmail is the best way to ensure you have a clean, organized inbox while still having access to the emails you may need later on. In this article, we will cover a few topics related to archiving emails in Gmail so that you can organize your inbox and remove some of the clutter. We will be covering the following topics in this article on archiving email in Gmail: When it comes to keeping your inbox clean and organized, you have a few options. Gmail gives you a nice feature to sort your messages into categories such as primary, promotions, social and more. This feature is helpful as it keeps those pesky promotional and social media notifications off of your primary inbox. This already goes a long way to organizing your inbox. This feature helps keep things more organized, but even with it enabled, your inbox may still fill up quite quickly and start looking a little chaotic. In this case, you might also want to start using the delete and archive functions to move emails you’ve attended away from your inbox. By archiving an email, you still keep a copy of the email, but it’s not shown on your primary inbox anymore. This email will be safely filed away and can be found if you ever need it again. Also, when someone sends you another email on that same thread you archived, it will still appear in your inbox. So you don’t have to worry that you’ll miss something or have to monitor multiple accounts or folders for activity. The Difference Between Archiving and Deleting Emails There’s a big difference between archiving emails and deleting them. You should be aware of this difference because sometimes you’ll have emails that can be deleted, whereas certain emails need to be kept as they may contain information that you may need. If you delete an email, it’s moved to your trash folder. It will stay here for a default period of 30 days. After this, it will be removed forever. You can delete spam messages and emails without a second thought. It’s good to know that if you accidentally deleted an email, you can still go and fetch it from the trash bin within that period. You can also set the period within your settings if you want it to be shorter or longer. Archiving your email only removes it from the inbox, but the message will still be stored securely. This way, you can recover it at any time and without any stress. The email will also remain archived indefinitely unless you move it to another folder or back to your inbox. It’s also important to note that you can delete emails that have been archived. This way, if you ever need to free up some space and have archived emails you no longer need, you can delete them and free up space. However, it is probably a good idea not to do this too frequently as you may never know when you might need to refer back to an email. I have been in situations where someone would request information from emails you’d think are no longer important that were sent many years back. Luckily, having them archived meant I could easily refer back to this information without much hassle or stress. Why Should You Archive Emails? Although very few people archive emails, there are a few great reasons why you should start using this feature with your Gmail account. Studies have shown that reading and answering emails take 28% of an employee’s workday. With a statistic this high, it’s critical that your email inbox works as efficiently as possible. Using the archive feature for your Gmail account has the following benefits: It provides a cleaner, more manageable inbox It ensures that no essential or valuable information is lost It makes it easy to search for and find the information when you need to It makes your business stay compliant with how long any digital information needs to be kept It keeps your business from litigation as it is a legal requirement to archive or store digital information for some time As you can see, there are many personal and professional reasons why it can be beneficial to use the archive feature provided by Gmail. It is also so simple to use this feature that you’ll wonder why you haven’t used it yet. How to Find Archive in Gmail? There would be no use for archiving emails if you can’t find them easily when you need to. For this reason, many people keep their emails in their primary inbox, even though it isn’t ideal. However, Google has made it extremely easy for you to use the archive in Gmail. So, where is ‘archive’ in Gmail? There is no archive folder in Gmail, which might make it look complicated to get any emails back once you’ve archived them. However, this is not the case as there are two very simple ways that you can find your archived emails. On Desktop Let’s look at the two different ways you can get your archived emails on your desktop. Via the All Mail Folder Archived emails are hidden by Google as a default. This is why you don’t see them when scrolling through your inbox. However, once you go into your ‘All Mail’ folder, they will become visible to you. While in your Gmail inbox, you hover over the left side to expand the side menu. From here, you scroll down to ‘All Mail’ and click on the folder. By doing this, you will open the folder containing all of your emails, including the archived ones. While this method works, it is not the most effective if you are archiving a lot of messages every day. Looking through a list of hundreds of emails manually can be very time-consuming. Luckily there is an easier way. Using the Search Bar This method is much more convenient, especially if you archive a lot of emails. When you use the search bar to search for an email, subject or topic, it automatically searches all your emails. This includes your sent and archived emails. As such, when you search for a specific topic through the search bar, you will also find the archived email related to that topic. There’s also a way to narrow this down and use the search bar to see only archived emails. To do this, type your topic, followed by (NOT label:inbox). Keep the NOT capitalized; otherwise, it won’t work. On Mobile Devices The process for mobile devices is a little bit different. Let’s look at those next. Finding Archived Emails on Android Devices Finding your archived messages on the Gmail app for Android devices is very simple. All you need to do is open the Gmail app on your Android device. Next, you tap on the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines), and from this menu, you can choose to use either the ‘All Mail’ method listed or the search bar option. Finding Archived Emails on iOS Devices Gmail might not be the preferred email client among iPhone users. The Gmail app is still available on the Apple App Store. If you have the Gmail app on your iOS device, you can access your archived emails by tapping on the hamburger icon and then using either the ‘All Mail’ or search bar method. Can You Automate Archiving Emails in Gmail? In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, automation is sometimes essential to improve productivity and efficiency. Luckily you can automate the process of archiving your emails in Gmail as you work. This means you no longer have to set time aside to manually archive or delete messages. Once you’ve opened your Gmail account, you can click on the gear icon in the top right corner of the application. Next, choose ‘See All Settings’ to access the settings menu. Under the ‘General’ tap, look for the option ‘Send and Archive’ option and select the ‘Show the Send and Archive Option in Reply’ option. Once you’ve made your selection, you can click on ‘Save’ at the bottom of the settings screen. Now, whenever you reply to emails, you will have a new send button. The button will read send and show the archive icon. Once you’ve typed your reply and click on this button, it will send your response and automatically archive the email. This makes keeping your inbox clean and organized even easier. Bottom Line Archiving your emails is an efficient way to organize your inbox and keep it organized. It is the equivalent of marking a task as done on a to-do list. Gmail has a unique way of arranging its archive as it is not a separate folder but rather a label. This means that a message can be archived and labeled with various titles, making it easier to find when needed. As opposed to having a folder that completely removes the email from the original folder once moved, making it more difficult to track down. What Does Archive Mean in Gmail?

  3. The antivirus vendor plans on 'securely archiving' the collected browser histories that an Avast subsidiary, Jumpshot, was selling to third-party firms. Avast hasn't elaborated on the decision, but it may have to do with the company trying to comply with privacy laws in Europe and California. Last week, Avast decided to stop collecting users’ browser histories from its free antivirus products following a PCMag-Motherboard investigation into the privacy risks around the data sharing. But what will happen to the existing information the company has already harvested? Well, it won’t be immediately deleted. Avast will hold on to the collected data from Jumpshot, the now-defunct company subsidiary that was selling the browser histories to third-party firms. "With the termination of the Jumpshot business, the company's data will be securely archived,” an Avast spokesperson told PCMag in an email. Avast hasn’t elaborated on the decision, which will probably rattle privacy-conscious users. But the company may be holding on to the data for an ironic reason; under privacy regulations in both Europe and California, the antivirus vendor is legally obligated to keep records on the data in the event a user demands to know what information was collected and who was it shared with. "They (Avast) are probably evaluating all the legal circumstances and determining the appropriate way to go,” said Adam Solander, a partner at the legal firm King & Spalding, who specializes in data privacy law. He points to Europe’s GDPR law, along with the California Consumer Privacy Act, which went into effect last month. "In California, for example, you have the right to understand where your data has been disclosed. If they deleted all the data, they (Avast) wouldn't be able to respond to those requests,” Solander said. Avast's response on Twitter to a user demanding their data Indeed, some users have been demanding the antivirus vendor tell them whether their browser histories were collected or shared with third-party companies. They’ve done so by lodging complaints on Twitter while citing GDPR and CCPA. Under the same regulations, a user can also request to be forgotten. However, the nuclear option of purging the data would immediately eliminate the risk of the data ever being used again. "It's difficult to say what is appropriate,” Solander said. “You have your individual rights on the one hand to request the data, whereas other individuals will claim [Avast] shouldn't have the data—that it's better to destroy it than to secure the data and not use it. "There's probably no clear answer on the correct path, given the individual rights people have under GDPR [or] CCPA,” he added. Avast's privacy policy has been recently revised to delete any mention of Jumpshot. But the document previously said the antivirus vendor could hold on to the Jumpshot data for as long as 36 months. So an eventual purge should occur. We've asked Avast for clarification, but have heard nothing back so far. In the meantime, the antivirus vendor maintains it did nothing illegal by collecting the browser histories, which were stripped of personal information such as names, logins and IP addresses. What Avast claims it was selling through Jumpshot was “de-identified” web traffic data to help big brands and marketers track e-commerce sales. However, a joint investigation from PCMag and Motherboard found the same browser histories could be combined with other information to reveal individual Avast user’s identities and what websites they've been visiting. The collected data could fall under the protection of GDPR, which also covers “pseudonymized” data, or data that can be attributed back to the original user “by the use of additional information.” Still, Avast might try to argue differently, and claim the data has been "anonymized," making it fall out of the bounds of GDPR's scope. "If Avast were needed to mount a legal defense, without the data, I don't know how you would be able to defend yourself," Solander added. As many as 100 million users from across the globe had their data harvested and sent to Jumpshot. In response to the GDPR and CCPA requests, Avast has been directing users to contact the company’s data protection officer at [email protected] One Avast user told PCMag he did so to learn what information was disclosed to Jumpshot. “There is no excuse. My trust in them (Avast) has been lost,” said Paul, who asked his surname not to be published for privacy reasons. He’s been a user of Avast products for seven or eight years, but decided to uninstall the company’s antivirus software from both his desktop and mobile devices following PCMag-Motherboard’s investigation into the data-harvesting. So far, Avast has not responded to Paul’s request. Under GDPR rules, the company has within a month to comply. “If the purpose has finished, Avast should not be retaining the data further,” he added.
